    Alaska Airlines is my favorite carrier. They have great customer service, an extremely generous mileage plan and routes to the places I regularly travel.

    For the past 30 years, Alaska has handed out prayer cards with its meals. They were simple cards quoting passages from Psalms printed over lovely photographs. Since 2006, when the airline stopped offering meals to customers in the main cabin, the cards have only appeared on meal trays in first class.

    Well, not anymore. Alaska has made a business decision, starting in February, not to include the cards with meals. Why, you ask?

    Apparently, it used to receive more positive than negative comments but the times, they are a changin’. The tide has turned.

    Psalms isnt just a religious chapter in the Bible. It's a book of poetry and inspirational messages that can be used in many different religions

    But not mine. They were inappropriate, and I'm glad they're gone.

    This is why I try and travel with status AND reservations. And each morning I wake up, before I put on my makeup, I say a little prayer card for you...♫♫
